The Prince Rebel 2 LS features a low profile silhouette to keep your center of gravity low for increased balance and stability. Sharkskin technology offers anti-slip lining to keep your foot locked in place for increased stability. The shoes' propulsion plate enhances heel stability while allowing quick forward motion for an incredibly responsive, agile shoe.
I've played with Asics for a long time and bought this shoe for the great look and amazing price.
I wore them around the house to break them in. They are definitely stiffer than my Asics Gel Resolution. Two issues were evident quickly. My toes hurt like heck from the stopping and turning; seems the toe part is pretty stiff. I also scuffed the court really bad.
Otherwise, it is great looking shoe for n amazing price. I plan on wearing them out and about and not playing tennis.
